Happy Wednesday, Sweet Thang! If you found me through this post on choosingraw.com, welcome! Let me tell you, it’s awfully scary to shove the shadowy bits of one’s predominantly sunny past into the spotlight. I hemmed and hawed about being real with you all : I chewed on the repercussions of said realness until they lost their Wuss-berry flavah and I just had to spit that sh*t out, put it all on paper, and conquer – IN WRITING – that very small part of me that still wants everyone to believe that I am, and always have been, a perfectly put together person.
Not even close, girlfran. And I’m not the only lemon around here! We’re all in this hot mess together and I think it’s our duty as humans to share exactly what struggles we’ve had and how we overcame them…because there are loads of brilliant babes, brimming with potential and positive energy, who could totally change the world if they weren’t battling food issues right now.
Thank you, Gena, for the exposure: for exposing my little one-girl internet island and giving me my fifteen minutes (because my shadowy bits may not love the spotlight, but I sure do); for exposing the prevalence of eating disorders in our culture with your Green Recovery Series and highlighting those who were once victims, but are now victorious or well on their way; and for building a place where sharing fosters healing.
Food issues are not the focus of Rosieglowwellness.com – treating yourself well, expressing yourself always, and radiating love and happy, healthy vibes are what this blog is about. But if you’re going through something, please use whatever inspiration you find here to get to where you need to be. Because you’re too valuable to stay shadowy!
That said… how about a little Wednesday inspiration, huh? We’ve talked about our future selves and our dream careers… how about some validation for the crap we’ve already been through? What inner-demon throwdowns have made you a wiser, more compassionate person and how? My saga lives here. I’d love to know yours
P.S. Just a heads-up, I’m going on vacay tomorrow and may not be able to post quite as regularly as I usually do… though who knows, maybe there’s killer wi-fi in the dessert. Regardless, I’ll be thinking of you all – regular visitors and newbies alike!
